    Hey Balmas, isn't Dive Bomb staring at the same door Grease Spot just knocked on?

    I did catch the bit about "guard business," but I figured Grease would just try telling them about the missing foals before bringing the bumbling guard into the equation. And then Soot went and did that. Which Grease is totally going to give her a talking-to about.

    And I get the dubious honor of being the first PC in this game to fail a roll. Yay?

    Well be grateful it wasn't something with graver consequences. 3 points of courage is less of a problem then getting tackled to the ground and arrested by guards.

    Okay, does that Heart roll qualify for Charismatic and a second roll? I just dropped XP on that mess and it flopped. Naturally.

    Okay, leaving for the evening again, so to not hold anything up, I'm just going to make the second roll here. BlasTech, please make your ruling before looking at the result, don't want to bias it or nothing:

    Force of persuasion, so yes. Charismatic does apply . Talents allow you a second roll as long as the first wasn't a 1.

    Anywhoo, I'll have the next post up later this morning.

    I'm finding that, when you take away the sophistication from Rarity and add in the integrity of Applejack, you get a pony who is borderline nutso when the mood takes him. And I'm not sure if that's a bad thing.

    Yeah, I had a real "D'oh" moment when I saw that. It went completely over my head. (Granted, I've been posting between doing other things, so I wasn't reading them all that carefully, but still.)

    Heh. I should have said Hoofball Goalie, then. I just didn't know the translation for Baseball.


    On a side note, there is no such thing as Soccer, no matter what some Americans may say. There is Football, and That Weird Game with Armor and Sometimes Kicking The Ball.

    In other words, there is Football, and there is Denial.

    eek Re: [MLP] Roleplaying is Magic: The Broken Road.

    I'm somewhat conflicted right now.

    Those of us who love roleplay know that our characters tend to become like us; mine do, at least. Generally, I'm in the support role, quiet and kind. Dive Bomb is just like that, with the added twist that he had a sick brother with an unknown illness.

    This is the first time that I've become more like a character that I roleplay.

    See, I'm the second oldest in my family, and the oldest son. I just read an email telling me that Matthew, my youngest brother, has begun to have problems with feeling sad. He's even admitted to cutting himself on the hand to relieve the sadness, or at least distract himself. He's got a doctor's appointment soon to determine whether it's mental or physical, or whether he has depression at all.

    I'm scared, to tell the truth. I've only known two people who've actually told me of their depression; one's my best friend and is bright and fun, but the other one was one of the weirdest roommates I've ever known. I know next to nothing about depression, and that frightens me.

    Heh. It's somewhat ironic that both Dive Bomb's reaction and mine is to throw ourselves into our studies--he in medicine, mine in psychology.

    I'm not one to ask for this normally, but I'd appreciate any prayers you can offer. Thanks.

    (And thanks for letting me unload on you. Happy feelings gone.)

    Not a worry, Balmas. Not normally one to say this sort of stuff, but have you both in my thoughts and prayers. ^^

    Just don't make the same mistake DB did and study too hard .

    I've got no real plans for anything else to happen today, but am open to suggestions.

    Do you guys want to RP some dinnertime shenanigans? Because you're pretty much the only passengers on the train at present, it could be a good excuse to have some conversation together, get to know each other. Otherwise, we can skip that and head straight for bedtime, at which point I'll end the day?

    Happy to do either really.

    @BlasTech: Knowing Cork, he'd go and chat it up with the others instead of doing all that pondering he meant to do on the train. So dinnertime shenanigans are certainly possible, and it would be a good idea to get the party a little more solidified before stuff starts to happen. I'm for it.

    Best of luck for you and your brother, Balmas.

    As for RP, I'd be happy with some more IC chatter, especially since Crown Cork hasn't had much conversation time with the rest of the party.

    Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone. Now that the initial panic reaction has passed, I feel we can get through this.


    @Blastech: Yes, I'd enjoy a bit more roleplay, get to know each other a little bit more.


    On a completely different note, I think I understand now how best to roleplay DB's shyness; it all comes down to how confident he is. When he's flying, he's on top of his game, he knows what he's doing, and it shows in his attitude; he smiles, laughs, and does the occasional stunt in his own company. In chemistry, he speaks quietly and authoritatively. However, put him in a room with other people and tell him to talk to people? He doesn't know what to do, and so becomes a wallflower.

    And thus ends the first day.

    Before we continue, I'd like to know if any of you guys have some early feedback on how things went? The purpose of the first day was to have the "training wheels" type of challenge in order for the PC's to get to know each other, and for you guys to get used to the mechanics and playstyle.

    What worked for you, what didn't? Anything you want to see changed or improved?
